I haven't posted in awhile and have never met you. I can identify with the tears. I've cried a lot yesterday. I feel like it was a final result of the built up anger and frustratiton and anger in me concening the things in my life that I have no control over. It was much like a release. Today I shut myself off from the rest of the world, turned off the phone, rested, didn't do anything I did not have to do and did not allow anyone, even myself to put an expectation on me.
I talked to my brother in Colorado last night who is a therapist. He took me through an exercise in my mind and inside myself that was very helpful. It helped me calm down and have some clarity. Tonight I feel differently and more peaceful. I don't know what tomorrow will bring. I only know that today is all I have. I am trying to stop obsessing about
my children's lives, the seemingly unsolvable problems in my life, and my need to sabatoge and keep myself in this place of pain and suffering. I know I must feel and be with these emotions and tears. There is a reason for them.
There is guilt, shame, grief and so many things assoicated with the feelings of sadness and anger I have, I know that much. But I do not have to solve all that today.
I too believe the tears are healing. I hate the headache..lol afterwards, but there is some sort of physical relief.
Blessings, Peace and Wellness to all,
"Hope is seldom found in the things we can see;it is the sweet fragrance of grace."
